Fit a Kenton MIDI retrofit kit

 

This option offers the most comprehensive level of control.

Most of the features of the Kenton MIDI retrofit kit are aimed at controlling the Juno using MIDI.

For incoming MIDI

  • Any MIDI channel can be selected
  • Notes (MIDI note numbers 36 - 96) - transpose possible
  • Program change (numbers 1 - 40)
  • Pitchbend - (bends up and down a fifth)
  • Mod Wheel
  • Filter cutoff frequency (of low pass filter)
  • Volume
  • Sustain (decay on-off)
  • Arpeggio clock synced to MIDI clock - variable ratio allowing 1/4 1/8 & 1/16th notes as well as triplets.

For outgoing MIDI

  • Any MIDI channel can be selected
  • Notes (MIDI note numbers 36 - 96) - transpose possible
  • Program changes 1 to 61 can be sent using a button press followed by a key press

Please see the retrofit info pages for more details about the retrofit kit.

Use the DCB port connected to a Kenton Pro–DCB mk3

 

You can control the Juno-60 using its DCB port connected to a Kenton Pro-DCB mk3. This method of control does not offer quite as much control as the retrofit kit, it is in fact notes only as far as the DCB port itself is concerned. Although both the DCB specification and the Pro-DCB mk3 support program change via DCB, the Juno-60 itself does not.

In addition, there is a VCF input on the Juno-60 which allows you to control the filter cutoff frequency. Link this to the Pro-DCB auxiliary output using a 3.5mm to 6.35mm jack cable to control the filter cutoff point.

You can also modulate the filter using the MIDI-syncable LFO built into the Pro-DCB mk3, using the mod wheel.

You can also link the clock input of the Juno-60 to the Clock output of the Pro-DCB mk3, again using a 3.5mm to 6.35mm jack cable. This will allow you to clock the arpeggiator in time with MIDI clock. You can vary the relationship between MIDI clock and the clock pulse going to the Juno-60 allowing you to clock 1/4 1/8 & 1/16th notes, as well as triplets.

Use a Kenton Pro–2000 mk1 or mk2

 

If you already have a Pro-2000 (mk1 or mk2), then you need only a the DCB port option added to your Pro-2000. Note that the DCB port for the Pro-2000 is OUT only, in other words you can play the synth using MIDI, but not the other way around.

Click here for 3.5mm to 6.35mm jack cables (1 or 2 if required)

4

Use a Kenton Pro–4 (discontinued)

 

If you already have a Pro-4, then you need only cables. The Pro-4 came equipped with a DCB port as standard (out only).

5

Use a Kenton Pro–SOLO

 

If you don't need to play the notes using MIDI, you can clock the arpeggiator using the Pro-SOLO mkII or a Pro-2000 or even a Pro-KADI, as they all have clock outputs. Again you will need a 3.5mm to 6.35mm jack cable.
